Re: Growing veggies in bags  (United States)

Glad to hear it is working good. I am using this as part of my deck gardening plan. This will basically be a deep garden box on legs, with shelves down each side (left/right). These shelves will be large enough to support one bag each (2 per side), and these shelves will also be screened into mini greenhouses. I think this may be ideal for the herb growing I have planned. I have a large hot deck, elevated in direct sun torture for more than half the day. But, I am building under the one source of partial shade provided by a palm tree. I think it will do well, I have a few potted plants doing well in that area right now.. I will start a thread and post pics in August when it happens.

Re: Growing veggies in bags  (United States)

Please post some pictures. It is always interesting to see other gardener's techniques and what is working (or not) for them. In my case, for years I have tried to grow lavender and it would always die out before it got very far in whatever season or location I tried to grow it. This year, on a lark, when I started my side yard project ( I bought three "French Lavender" plants (although, I think it is Lavandula stoechas -- Spanish lavender) for the heck-uv-it and the darned things are pretty happy growing in that location! Hopefully they will get to the blooming stage and beyond. I will update my side yard project in a few more weeks. Check back.

Re: Growing veggies in bags  (United States)

I used to grow strawberries in a bag that had holes for planting all up and down the sides.  It worked great!  I would love to see pictures of how everybody is doing this as well!
